Today, April 17, the grand opening of the 62nd International Scientific Student Conference took place. This year almost 3,000 participants take part in it, which is a record figure for the last 8 years. In total this year there are 48 sections and more than 150 subsections in various scientific areas.

Mikhail Fedoruk, rector of NSU, in his welcoming speech to the participants noted:

— This year the conference is held for the 62nd time. Those who were the first participants of the ISSC are well over 80 years old, many of them have become outstanding scientists and still remember this conference with warmth. This year we have quite a lot of out-of-town participants. I wish them not only to perform successfully, but also to get to know the university, the Novosibirsk Akademgorodok. I am sure that you will want to come back here again and again.

The conference format appeared a long time ago and has not yet lost its relevance. For many, MNSK becomes a successful start to a future career in science.

— Those who speak well and successfully at the conference have a much better chance of becoming high-class scientists in the future. This is already a well-confirmed observation. In general, the format of the conference itself began to take shape back in the 19th century, when there were already too many scientists to make do with one-on-one communication, and this format remains an important part of the work of a modern scientist to this day,” emphasized Ilya Beterov, Ph.D. Mathematical Sciences, Associate Professor of the Department of Quantum Electronics Faculty of Physics of NSU. 

MNSK is one of the traditions for which Akademgorodok is famous. Important features of the event are open, free dialogue, and the very fact of participation already plays a big role.

“It’s practically a competition, but a competition in which there are no losers. If you came, if you spoke, then it definitely helped you in some way,” noted Mikhail Lavrentyev, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Dean Faculty of Information TechnologiesNSU.

He was supported by Andrey Zuev, Doctor of Historical Sciences, Director Humanitarian Institute of NSU:

— The fact that your reports were selected and accepted for participation in the conference and the fact that you are sitting in this hall suggests that you are the best of the best. You are the hope of our science.

There are several dozen sections at MNSK. And each participant has the opportunity not to limit himself to just one direction, but to participate in the work of different sections. Vladimir Diev, Doctor of Philosophy, Director, spoke about the importance of this approach Institute of Philosophy and Law of NSU: 

— The world around us is not divided into faculties, institutes, sections, subsections, the world is one. Therefore, I recommend not limiting yourself to your section, but being like others, because today the most important thing is interdisciplinary research, science at the intersection of sciences. Our conference provides such a unique chance to go to another section, subsection, and immerse yourself in a completely different atmosphere.

The scientific method of studying the world was proposed by the ancient Greeks. However, all the basic knowledge about the Universe, the world, how everything around works, was obtained in the last 100-150 years. Science provides a unique opportunity to discover something new and feel like a pioneer.

— There is no need to divide science into fundamental and applied. There is simply science and science in detail. I wish you to get to the details and figure it out, to do something new that no one has done before. I wish you to experience that feeling of a pioneer when a person first set foot on the North Pole, climbed to the top of Everest, having spent colossal efforts. Here in science you can experience this. Good luck to you and your success in science,” the dean concluded Faculty of Physics of NSU, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences Vladimir Blinov.

Also, as part of the opening, there were two lectures from science popularizers. The first speaker was Dmitry Epshtein, a graduate of the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics of NSU, a candidate of physical and mathematical sciences, who spoke about what cosmonautics is doing in the 21st century, what space missions are currently operating and what awaits us in the future. The guest of the conference was also Maxim Nikitin, Doctor of Physics and Mathematics, Head of the Laboratory of Nanobiotechnologies at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Head of the Nanobiomedine Department at the Sirius University of Science and Technology. Maxim Nikitin spoke about new mechanisms for storing information in DNA, which will make it possible not only to understand the nature of a wide variety of processes, improve the specificity of gene therapy and the safety of DNA/RNA vaccines, but also to create a new generation DNA computer.
